‘The Drummer’ Hitchhikes the World with Just a Drum Set and a Dream

BERLINLOVESYOU_thedrummer_4

You read that title right. It’s the stuff of dreams for us restless, wannabe musicians (we could all start a successful band if we really tried, right?). And a man known now only as “The Drummer,” our modern-day hero, took the plunge in June, hitchhiking or jet-setting or boating through Germany, and then the rest of the … Read more ‘The Drummer’ Hitchhikes the World with Just a Drum Set and a Dream

“To Be Gay is to Be Political.” Scott Grabell’s Homopropaganda is All about Empowerment

BERLIN LOVES YOU Scott Grabel The Blue Bunny Featured Image 2

Photography as performance—and as protest, is the heartbeat of LOVEGAYPEOPLE, a mission forged by Berlin’s own Scott Grabell, or Scotty the Blue Bunny’s, that links the ‘40s and the first-wave AIDS of the ‘80s to modern photographs of strong, dynamic gay people. These performances—found in each living, breathing photograph, taken by Scotty himself—offer a “flood of politically obvious … Read more “To Be Gay is to Be Political.” Scott Grabell’s Homopropaganda is All about Empowerment

Let’s Yalla Travel App is here so you can quit this BS and go on a spontaneous trip tomorrow

BERLINLOVESYOU_Let’sYALLA_1

Let’s Yalla did something rather incredible: they bottled that mad and chaotic Berlin energy, which we all felt rattling in our hearts and lungs in the weeks before moving here–that feeling we all crave. We can grasp it once again. Because even here, you find yourself nibbling that 4 a.m. kebab at 11:30… folding laundry… catching … Read more Let’s Yalla Travel App is here so you can quit this BS and go on a spontaneous trip tomorrow

Neukölln’s Fellfisch Café & Schmuck has the finer things in life

BERLINLOVESYOU_FellfischCafe_1

During mid-afternoon on a sunny day, warm light streams through the glass windows of Emser Straße’s Fellfisch Café. Purple and aching-yellow flowers decorate each wooden table, and a Bob Dylan-Laura Marling-folk soundtrack breathes from the corner speaker. The occasional antique chair; the rodent-bone collection, tapped in a frame against the eggshell blue wall; the cookies … Read more Neukölln’s Fellfisch Café & Schmuck has the finer things in life

Raven’s Boylesque Is Sexy And Horrific, And Dammit, We Need It

BERLINLOVESYOU_Raven_5

The Dark Prince of Burlesque, Raven, is the Hyde to normality’s Jekyll; that edgy personality that morphs, horrifically, when the clock-strikes, shelling off convention like snakeskin. A dark, made-of-nightmare personality spikes, slicing that fine line between sexuality and terror—making steady eye contact with this unrivaled concentration, this knowledge that yes: this far outside the box, … Read more Raven’s Boylesque Is Sexy And Horrific, And Dammit, We Need It

Questions of Stone with ‘Mineralia’ Exhibit @ Holz Kohlen Koks

BERLIN LOVES YOU Featured Image

Art, is, perhaps, meant to flip things upside down—to illustrate new meaning for elements previously thought unimportant, trivialities we literally or metaphorically tromp over without notice. Yes. In this case, I’m talking about pavement—something, until now, I assumed was a backdrop for only childhood skinned knees and chalk drawings and the occasional pick-up basketball game. … Read more Questions of Stone with ‘Mineralia’ Exhibit @ Holz Kohlen Koks
